One Hell of a Day

Man listening to Tay (click the title link) is bringing me out of my dark place. A recent lupus attack had me down, but I'm seeing the sun come out again.

Man, this music takes me to the time I roamed the jazz haunts and clubs, hung out with future greats and importantly folks that knew and realized the true beauty in Real Music. That is what the Soulman brought to me last January and now it's coming back like a circle; like my lupus cycles so does life and I'm not giving up, no sir. Listening to the voice, passion of Tay Hicks helping once again to bring me back to life and love. "Hell of a Day", hell of a life, all the same.

Art and music, the heart and soul of life.

Thank you Soulman.

I'm trying, 'cause dying don't sound as much fun.

Groove on.

Taylor Hicks to be seen on Rehearsals.com

Taylor to be performing "What's Going On" and "Hell of a Day". Schedule time according to the site, 3:00 p.m. EST so I'm expecting it at 4 p.m. CST.

What's going on with the link featured as Taylor's official site? Click that and you get graycharles.com and they are both down...hmmm... a little underconstruction action. Taylor has been in talks with the Great Gray Charles.com guy to meld their talents, which is an exciting turn of events. And Gray thought he was retiring from active Soul Patrol duty. hah! Man, I step away from the computer and the world changes. Of course no one remembers to contact Sunny and let her know what the what is going on... (I'm so last Spring I guess; or more like So never happened ;) )

Speaking of which, I have been away for a while. The dreaded lupus that I have to live with has been wrecking havoc on me for the past several months. I'm thinking I may be coming out of it because I have actually the energy to spend some serious time on-line today. Daughter Daphne asked me the other day why I don't blog anymore, and that made me sadder than the lupus has lately. (*singing* Sometimes I feel like I'm dying...) I missed blogging and miss the Soul Patrol. I've just not had the mental energy to do much, the physical illness part taking it all down. I only mustered up a few blog inputs over the Summer, so now that I'm roaming the internet again, what fun it is to see Gray and Tay matching up. Very cool. I've always said Taylor was a smart man.

I'll be checking out the rehearsal.com later today, and man it is great to come back to the upcoming changes brewing and excitement stewing.

Groove on Soulman.
